Explore Kihei's surroundings by going to Maui Specialty Chocolate (in Kahului) and River Rafting & Tubing (in Lahaina). There's still lots to do: get a new perspective on things with Boat Tours & Water Sports, stroll through Wailea Beach, discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour, and indulge your thirst for a good beer at Maui Brewing Company.
